    Another Intact Tomb Found At The Etruscan Site Of Vulci

    Another intact pit-tomb from the end of the 8th century BC, containing a male skeleton, has been unearthed at the Necropolis of Poggetto Mengarelli in the Etruscan town of Vulci in Central Italy.

    Near the scant remains of the skeleton (teeth and some pieces of the long bones of the limbs), personal ornaments of bronze were found: a dragon-type fibula, a ring and a buckle.

    An impasto jar and a ceramic krater painted with geometric designs stood at the feet of the man in the position where they had been originally placed.

    Three bowls and two ceramic cups, one painted with horizontal stripes, and a kyathos (a deep bowl set on a foot used for ladling wine into drinking cups) were discovered on the opposite side of the tomb.

    A magnificent half-moon bronze razor, an exceptional iron spearhead decorated with a series of bronze rings, perhaps part of the handle, a small axe and the blade of a knife were discovered by the side of the skeleton and clearly reflect the high social status of the buried man.

    Another pit-tomb of the same type and period, which had unfortunately been looted, was found in the same area, to the south.

    The discovery was announced just a few days after more 17 tombs were found at the same necropolis.
